For a terrifically monochromatic vibe on a wedding day, you really can’t go past Angeline & Joseph’s industrial luxe wedding at The Joinery in Brisbane’s West End. The couple’s vision was tastefully extravagant, and the venue lent itself perfectly to this – letting the high ceilings give way to breathtaking floral installations, and black and white decor filled the warehouse space. Captured by Florido Weddings, the couple tells us about their incredibly special day!
We originally met through our church! April 2020 was meant to be our original wedding date, but it was worth the wait.
My dress was from Zavana Bridal. I originally saw a photo on Instagram and fell in love with it. I knew what style I usually loved but still tried on a few dresses, just to be sure. I tried on my dress last and immediately fell in love with it. I also chose a reception dress from Zimmerman.
Joseph wore a classic, timeless, black and white suit from Peter Jackson.
Our special day eventually happened in August 2020. The ceremony was held at Weddings at the Church in South Brisbane. The feeling we had at our ceremony was indescribable – completely filled with love. It represented our faith, which we included in a time of worship. I walked down the aisle to “Why I Love You” by Major (sung by Lai Utovou and accompanied by pianist Moni Amato).
The flowers on the day, created by Stem Design, were spectacular! The floral ceiling installation of white hydrangea, white bougainvillea and stunning preserved hanging Amaranthus was amazing. The backdrop of sculptural floral installations in white roses, hydrangeas, and disbuds, were also included on the reception tables. My bridal bouquet was an arrangement of white roses and blush dahlias.
The whole wedding was designed and styled by AVIDEAS. Everything was stunning, and it all complimented each other. We loved everything about the day. All the details were important to us, and it all came together beautifully.
Florido Weddings (Callie & Andre) are such amazing people to shoot with and to have capture your day. They made us feel comfortable immediately, full of laughter and told us on the day to “be in the moment and enjoy everything”. Our favourite photo from the day is one of us in The Joinery.
Due to COVID, we weren’t able to have a first wedding dance, however, we included the Traditional Samoan dance called the Taualuga. This dance is where the bride changes into the Samoan Attire and performs a dance to end the night. Guests and family members join by placing monetary gifts on the bride during her performance.
Our favourite part of the day was that we were finally able to get married and celebrate with our family and friends, with amazing food and an incredible atmosphere.
Our advice for couples getting married is to try to enjoy every moment. This includes the planning as well as on the day!
